Designed in the Indo-Saracenic architectural style, it features two domed minarets at the entrance. It was built in 1909 with 96 bedrooms and two electric lifts by W. A. Chambers & Company who earlier completed the designs of the iconic Taj Mahal Hotel in 1903. It now houses a hostel for members of the legislative assembly, a basic canteen, and a department store on the ground floor.
